Automattic plugins

Automattic is the author of a large number and wide variety of plugins, available through the plugin repository. Of these, the Automattic-authored plugins added most often to WordPress sites on the VIP Platform are:

  • WooCommerce: A free, highly customizable ecommerce plugin. Customers are encouraged to review the supplementary documentation for running WooCommerce the VIP Platform.
  • Co-Authors Plus: Enable multiple author bylines to be assigned to posts, pages, and custom post types.
  • VIP Go Geo Uniques: Tailor the content served to site visitors on a country-by-country basis.
  • Comprehensive Sitemaps: Includes all of a site’s entries in a sitemap. Designed to avoid memory and timeout problems when rendering heavy sitemap pages with a large number of posts.
  • Edit Flow: Collaborate with an editorial team within WordPress. Features include custom statuses, a calendar, editorial comments, and more.
  • Live Blog: Enables a site to host live event coverage to a large, distributed audience.
  • Maintenance Mode: Make a site temporarily inaccessible to public traffic until site maintenance is complete. A customized page template and messaging can be served to users while the plugin is enabled.
  • Legacy Redirector: Create redirects for old, or legacy, URLs that now return 404 HTTP response status codes.
  • Zoninator: Display curated groupings of related stories on a WordPress site.

Just like any third-party plugin, when considering an Automattic-authored plugin carefully evaluate and test the suitability of the plugin’s functions and compatibility with a site’s custom application code before enabling the plugin on production. VIP cannot guarantee that an Automattic-authored plugin will be compatible with a customer’s site.
